Death Loves Life

  • Young and beautiful, Life is enthralled with the world around her. Death is enamored by Life's innocence and vivacity, but his attempts to connect with her are fleeting. Despite Death’s awkward and destructive path, Life recovers from each loss with graceful fortitude. In Death’s gloom, a passionate love for Life blossoms.
     
    This very short film was conceived by Clara Lehmann & Jonathan Lacocque, and completed nights and weekends from 2014 to 2015. It's our first short narrative and was an experiment to see whether we could pull it off, and to begin the process of working on more narrative projects in the future.  We hope you enjoy!
